Multi-Channel Marketer Level 3. (V1.0)
End-Point Assessment (EPA) is the final assessment for an apprentice. An apprentice cannot achieve their apprenticeship without passing the End-Point Assessment.
EPA is an opportunity for an apprentice to showcase what they have learnt during their time on programme. This assessment includes a Written Report with Presentation and Questioning and Interview component.
The apprentice will be given the opportunity to complete their End-Point Assessment either face to face or remotely.
Gateway requirements for a Multi-Channel Marketer Level 3 apprentice are;
Evidence the apprentice has achieved Level 2 Maths and English
Portfolio of Evidence typically containing 12 pieces of evidence
Portfolio Mapping Document
Gateway Document which includes Work-based project scope, subject, and title (no more than 500 words)
Project Report with Presentation and Questioning
The project report must have a word count of 2500 words. A tolerance of 10% above or below is allowed at the apprentice’s discretion. Appendices, references and diagrams are not included in this total.
The presentation with questions must last 45 minutes. This will typically include a presentation of 20 minutes and questioning lasting 25 minutes. The independent assessor can increase the time of the presentation and questioning by up to 10%.
The independent assessor must ask at least 6 questions. Follow up questions are allowed where clarification is required.
Interview Underpinned by a Portfolio of Evidence
The Interview Underpinned by Portfolio of Evidence is a two-way structured discussion between the apprentice and the Independent End-Point Assessor. 2 weeks’ notice must be given for the associated component to ensure that the assessor has sufficient time to review the Portfolio. Detail on criteria covered can be found within our support pack. The Interview lasts for 60 minutes and will be carried out online unless otherwise agreed at gateway.
Apprentices will achieve an overall grade of Distinction, Pass, Merit or Fail for their End-Point Assessment.
These results will be communicated within 10 days of assessment. Should a learner need to retake either or both assessment methods, it is suggested that a resit is taken within 2 month and a retake within 3 months of the failed assessment. Resit/retake period can be up to 6 months after fail notification is provided. If the component/s are not resat/retaken within those 6 months, then all components will need to be completed again. The grade will be capped at a pass in the event of a resit/retake.
